in the house. including dick cheney. in fact, then-congressman cheney voted against sanctions for south africa at least ten times. during the '80s. but even years later he said he had no regrets. when cheney was running for vice president in 2000, he justified those votes by saying, quote, the african national congress was then viewed as a terrorist organization. i don't have any problems at all with the vote i cast 20 years ago. back then republicans like dick cheney and ronald reagan were on the wrong side of history and on issue after issue today. immigration, gay rights, health care, inequality. republicans are on the wrong side of history once again. joining me now is karen finney. thanks for being here tonight. >> good to be with you. >> karen, this isn't ancient history. as recently as 2003, the right wing national review magazine was blasting mandela for his, quote, vicious anti-americanism. and his, quote, praise for terrorists. do these conservatives think we've just forgotten what they've said about mandela over the years? >> and i think they've all forgotten history. if i'm not mis

's an enemy of the country in my opinion, dick cheney is. he's an enemy of the country. lord, take him to the promised land, will you? i don't wish the guy goes to hell. i just want him out of here. do you know what they are talking about? like this right wing slut, laura ing graham? yeah, she's a talk slut. >> he thinks god ordained and supports obama care. built on lies. >> what do they have in common, all these people? they believe in personal insults against conservatives. they lie with impunity and say things like somebody should defecate in sarah palin's mouth. do you know something? nobody at the top of nbc has yet to apologize for that statement. bill griffin, it's been 20 dais and you haven't apologized. >> are you proud of that? brian williams, tom brokaw? are you proud? coming up, the next legal challenge for obama care. the state of oklahoma sued the administration, the attorney general of the state is here to explain why. and your choice for tonight's video of the day coming up. ya know, with new fedex one rate you can fill that box and pay one flat rate. i didn't know the

-apartheid movement. it's just not true. >> this came up in 2000 when dick cheney was nominated to be the vice presidential candidate. and he was asked on this program by tim russert about opposing even a resolution to call for mandela's being freed. this is what cheney said then. >> well, certainly i would have loved to have nelson mandela released. i don't know anybody who was sffor keeping him in prison. again, this was a resolution of the american congress, so it wasn't as though if we passed it he was going to be let out of prison. it had another provision. it required the recognition of the anc, which at the time advocated violence in south africa. my recollection is the reagan administration opposed it and i supported the administration. >> tom? >> everything was happening at warp speed. that's one of the things you have to remember. we were going from the pitch cold war to these extraordinary changes that were going on not just behind the soviet union but in the satellite states as well. then in south africa, you had the additional pressure, as reverend sharpton points out, that grew r

as a terrorist group and dick cheney voted against a resolution to release nelson mandela so this was all happening around the world. >> right. i think peter's point that south africa's transition was facilitated by the end of the cold war is extremely important. but it's also extremely important to remember that in the 1980s, a global anti-apartheid movement arose during the cold war in which people in america and europe said we're not going to see south africa in purely cold arrest terms. we're not going to accept ronald reagan's -- the anc because we called ate communist organization. i think the willingness to look at south africa beyond cold arrest terms even when the cold war was raging in the neigh years. >> when you talked to nelson mandela, did you find that he -- had he forgiven the west for, you know, having mostly for the most part sided against the anc? >> i think in my conversations with him, he forgive the west, yes, and he realized that a huge amount of learnings we can pick up from western leaders and in deed we did pick up a huge amount of learnings. i think for example,
